Asus Rampage Formula (X48) Thread - Page 62

post #611 of 913
Here is a Pic as promised. As you can see its a interesting and tight fit for most everything especially with that X-Fi Platinum in there (which I still love as a soundcard and that front bay comes in real handy) Its a rather clean setup but there is not a ton of space. Still the Spotcool is working and now im more stable and cooler than ever at 1.55nb and just turned down the VTT from 1.4 (1.38) to 1.2v (1.14). Next is to bring the Vcore from 1.35 (1.33) down.

Heh nice pic. My X-FI is also on the top PCI slot.
Definitely +rep for both of you (IM0001 and Kinger).

Do you have a NIC in the bottom slot now? What is that?

ya thats an Airlink101 N card from Frys. works great once you get the good vista 64bit drivers from the ralink site instead of the ones windows update wants to use lol.

So i have 2 pci slots both used up. When the time comes for a second X2 it will either by on my future i7 setup or im going to have to get a better wireless nic that can use the top PCI-E 1X slot.

Aight well so far Today I could not get her to run an orthos test without failing a rounding to less then 4 lol. So I brought up the VTT to 1.4 (1.34 Windows) and that didnt fix anything. Upped the Vcore to 1.375 (1.36 windows) and she is now running the longest test yet.. Damn I wanted to drop the vcore not raise it. Ill see If i can bring the vtt back down though. Once I get this all dialed in its time to tinker with the Ram. I believe I can tighten up the timings a bit with it running at 1:1.

Anyone know what would be best to increase the Read Speed in Everest? I can write and copy pretty good (9500+) but the read speed is in the 8000's. Latency is around 55

Yeah the read speed seems more closely tied with FSB than the other 2.
post #618 of 913
Well after messing around for a while and trying to get the ram to run at this weird FSB with any decient tRD setting. I got her stable at 4.05ghz with a 1.375Vcore (1.36 windows), 1.4VTT (1.34), 1.55NB (1.58) 2.18 VDIMM (2.22 which I think I can pull back .4) and everything else at base settings. Pulled in the timings on the ram a little and I picked up my read speed from 7500ish to 9050ish as well as kept good speeds on write and copy and have a 55ns latency. Have to say I am quite happy and that Spotcool has the NB not going over 58C under load where without it it was getting above 71C with an idle of around 52-56C lol. The CPU is staying cool enough with a max temp of 66C on rair ocasions under full load.

Overall she is running as stable so far as she did at 3.84 after testing with OCCT, Orthos, and 3DMark Vantage.

I would still like to mess with the ram a bit since I know they have a bit more in them. I am just trying to find a good setting with a 475FSB I don't have any good even numbers for the ram to run at outside of 950, 1150, etc. Need to spend some time playing with it and such.

Also has anyone played with the settings below the tRD (Common Performance Level)? The Pull In values Enable or Disable. I know reading that one article from Anntech but they do not mention any use of them other than what the sorta do with the phases.

I just installed the spotcool, really didnt have any room for the darn thing with the TRUE and my SB X-Fi Platnum in the top PCI slot but my spotcool fits just between the card and the nb enough to send air up through it into the TRUE and out the back/top. It might even help cool the CPU a tad too lol.

*Holly Molly* Update.

Just ran Vantage twice with the spotcool. 1.55V NB 4.05ghz, 475fsb, 1.35vcore (1.33 windows) and usually the NB after a vantage run would be closing to 71C or so and idle it was no lower than 59C. It has yet to climb over 54C.. Ill take a pic and show you guys how it looks in there. All the stock cooling needed was a little airflow since the NB is packed under the True, next to 8G Mushkin Ram and above a X-FI... Definitly fixed my stability problem methinks now that I can run a bit more voltage and keep the temps way down from where they were.
I just installed my SpotCool. Here are some pics and my temps. From 61C to 53C with the Artic Silver 5, and now from 53C to 47C with the SpotCool. I feel a lot better about 47C than 61C (and 78C prior to taking the NB off "Auto").

I built my first computer this weekend, and it was not bad. I got a bad HD from NewEgg, but luckily I have two in my Bad Ass rig, so I used the extra 750GB Seagate. I built it for my father-in-law, so I didn't go crazy on the overclocking, but I think I built it for $700 or less, and it gets over 11,000 3DMark06.

If you are going to build a computer for a friend/family member, and you want performance that they will drool over, but < $1,000 with Windows Vista Ultimate 64 and Office Professional 2007, I suggest: Gigabyte UD3P, E5200 @ 3.1 Mhz (250x12.5) - easy to get stable, 4 GB Mushkin, Corsair PSU, HD 4830, Artic Cooler 7 Pro, nice case... If you are going to build it for yourself, pay $50 more and get an E8xxx processor in 2 weeks when the prices go down. 99 out of 100 Joe Schmoe's will love an 11,000 3DMark06 score! Pictures going up on the UD3P thread.

The phases are equivalent to changing the tRD of one channel. So if you pull both channels A and B back by 1 it's the same of reducing the tRD by 1 level. This is rarely necessary (unless someone is mixing different RAM in CH A/B). There's not much else to do with this, have you already found your min stable tRD?
